To hear our take on Andrew Callaghan and This Places Rules please support us on Patreon. 2022 was hard on your Art and Labor crew- so we wanted to start the new year with the most “le fantastique” thing we could think of, a world of endless possibilities, a place where magic could exist, a place where you can be driven insane with the contradiction of portraying the desire to never age as monstrous while yourself employing a mo cap technique that will absolutely result in older actresses no longer being able to get work as older characters, just their younger selves, or not, who cares, what am I even talking about.
A&L is, historically, staunchly pro-spectacle, so indulge us a little with a fated Avatar waterside chats- What the hell is this Cameron guy’s deal, how does a movie so bad still get Sarah to easily shell out $30 multiple times? How come OK never saw the first one??? Why is Kate Winslet here?? Do you guys think the butterfly fairy wing jellyfish are just like a merchandising thing? If we start actually doing episodes consistently again would yall send us to Disneyland to finally SEE?
We’re joined by podcast legend Leslie Lee III (@leslieleeiii) to discuss the 1976 classic film Marathon Man. Dustin Hoffman plays a young graduate student roped into a high-stakes plot involving US intelligence agents, sadistic Nazis, and millions of dollars in gems. We explore the story’s underlying pro-communist elements and artistic motifs. It’s Struggle Session x Art and Labor!! Get some!!

We saw Sorry to Bother You and it was THE BEST MOVIE and THE ONLY MOVIE! We celebrate Chairman Boots Riley’s new masterpiece. We try to process the race and gender roles depicted in the film, but we’re way more excited to do a working class analysis. We’re now offering bonus materials on our Drip page! Feel free to skip the first 15 minutes of this ep that is just an ad for it. If you like us please consider donating for bonus writing, memes, and art:https://d.rip/art-and-labor
